Bomb Sweeper is a Game & Watch game released as a part of the Multi Screen series on June 15, 1987. It is a dual-screen single-player Game & Watch. It opens like a compact, with an upper and lower screen.

The player character is John Solver, who must navigate a maze to defuse bombs set by “Jack”. When playing on “Game A” mode, the maze begins to move from left to right after a certain number of bombs are defused, and the player must find an exit back to the surface. The top screen is merely cosmetic, and shows the boss who sends the player character into the underground maze. Unlike in most Game & Watch games, lost lives are not reset when a player reaches 300 points.

Bomb Sweeper was recreated in Game & Watch Gallery 4 for Game Boy Advance.
